Blog Favorites: Week of Jan. 14-20

I'm introducing a new feature, a weekly roundup of my favorite posts from my favorite blogs, for your browsing pleasure.

Second City Style has a great post titled "How to Save Britney: 6 Fashion Tips That Can Save Our Starlet" that should be required reading for Britney, her stylists and her handlers. Then again, I don't know that Britney does read, so maybe someone can read it outloud for her.

One of my new favorite bloggers, Capitol Hill Barbie has a fantastic review of MAC's Shadesticks, a must-try for anyone who misses their Crayolas.

The girls behind Go Fug Yourself may be best known for their fabulously snarky analysis of star fashions, but in this post they take on the disturbing trend of actresses who lose a ton of weight and drastically change their look upon hitting the bigtime, expressing the hope that the beautiful America Ferrera won't follow that path. I couldn't agree more. You can read the post here.

A lot has been said about the slow death of The Gap, but two of my favorite bloggers, The Budget Fashionista and Poetic and Chic have some very interesting insights on the company and suggestions for keeping The Gap afloat.

The one and only Kristen at Beauty Addict wrote a couple fantastic posts on the best and worst of Golden Globes makeup.

As a fellow fine-haired girl, I know how tough it is to get curls to last more than 20 minutes before wilting. Marcy from Fantabulous gives a great tip on getting curls to stick. Check it out here.

Major thanks to Megan from Not Martha for linking to Cosmetics Cop Paula Begoun's list of drugstore doubles, dirt-cheap products with the same ingredients and effectiveness of expensive products from La Mer, Prescriptives, Trish McEvoy and more.

My girl Annie at Poetic and Chic has an incredibly informative post about finding and buying vintage clothing. Whether you're interested in purchasing your first vintage piece or are an experienced collector, you should definitely check it out.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
